The Island™ 6 benefits from the WireWorld award winning Symmetricon™ (formely Symmetric Balanced Pair™) proprietary cable design of our high-end cables, which utilize sixteen signal conductors instead of twelve conductors found in conventional HDMI® cables. This unique and original design features parallel conductors with two drain wires per shield pair, which reduces attenuation and provides greater impedance uniformity.

WireWorld’s Quality Assurance
WireWorld is leading the way in verifying the quality of all its HDMI® products. WireWorld’s range of HDMI® cables are subjected to a very exact quality control and testing procedures. Each and every cable goes through a full electrical test and visual inspection. Only the samples that meet our strict criteria are shipped to customers worldwide.

”Eye Pattern” test

Eye pattern test is performed to determine the capability of the cable to carry the specified (as laid down by The HDMI Licencing, LLC) digital video signal over the length of any given HDMI® cable.

Whilst other brands choose to highlight favorable and selective results that only provide partial account of compliance, WireWorld tests the entire range of HDMI® cables that it manufactures.
